I must admit that Falloch’s debut album ‘Where Distant Spirits Remain’ from 2011 has been spinning more than once. Their mixture of post-rock and folk metal has something refreshing about it. When they the year after announced that their vocalist Andy Marshall had decided to quit the band, it felt like they had lost a huge part of their sound. Andy actually went on to form Saor, which actually works within the same genre.
Falloch went on and hired a new vocalist in Tony Dunn, entered the studio and recorded their sophomore album ‘This Island, Our Funeral’. And I must say, Tony Dunn’s vocals fits the band perfectly. I’m not sure if I think that the album is reaching up to their debut, but they have definitely matured musically as a band. So, if you’re into post-rock with folk-influences, you know what to do!
